I 'm a 30 year old mom of two kids and married to a wonderful man.Living in a different country is hard for me,made merealize what i was missing from the smell of the bbq on the street to the shouts and laughter of the kids and teenagers playing tag in the moonlit night. The sweet noise of my mum calling or be it shouting my name.
See that mug shot up and center? That's me on my very very good day. What does very good day mean, when I at least blow dry my hair, dress up with jeans and a nice shirt and do a little bit of make up. My friends tell me that I am pretty, beautiful but they don't know that I don't look like that everyday. That picture is far from the truth. When I am at home I am in sweats and no make up at all and hair standing on ends. I do make it a point to look presentable when I am out. I know I should look more like that for my husband. Looking like that takes time and I don't have the luxury of time on my hands. What I did notice on my face is that I really do have pronounce wrinkles on the side of my eyes. It's high time that I find an anti wrinkle cream that's not to expensive. I am so cheap that I hardly spend anything for myself. I no longer have that youthful glow, I don't think I can still glow, lol. Kidding aside, I do take care of myself from time to time. It's also important to do that for ourselves. Recharges our batteries and make us feel that we also need attention.
Whatever happened to our perception of beauty? Some say that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". If that is the case why do we put so much stress on what size we are. Weight is a major issue when the topic of conversation is beauty. In society today, slender and skinny women are considered beautiful and stunning. What about the full figured and heavy set women? Women kill themselves over trying to be beautiful in the wrong sense. They go on crazy diets, go one all natural diet pills,take weight loss pills, fat burners and go on fanatic exercise marathon. Some develop eating disorders due to to much pressure. Women are pressured to look beautiful and slimmer. Who is at fault here? Society or ourselves? I do care about how I look. I have good days, okey days and very bad days.
This was the sight that greeted us when we got home from our disastrous date. I wondered why Kaitlyn didn't come rushing when I opened the door. Maybe she didn't hear us with the T.V. blaring. We tiptoed into the family room and found her in her Mima's arms fast asleep. Let me tell you how much that means to my MIL. She is Kaitlyn's biggest fan and just thinks the world of her. She cherishes the time when its just her and Kaitlyn. It was still early, we were surprise that she already fells asleep. That's what happens when she takes no naps in the afternoon anymore. She sleeps faster and earlier at night.
Sound good but, when its a weekend you want to sleep in. I can't do that. I do try to sleep in but when your children is trained to wake up early they will wake up early no matter how late or how early they fall asleep. I am not a morning person, I am racoon looking eyes. If you know how to remove dark circles please do share it with me. Still, they do try to let me sleep in. When you have kids its hard, they can't stay quiet and relax for a long time. So much energy in such little bodies.
